Father’s Day is a great opportunity to show Dad you care, but it isn’t always easy to find the right gift. Regardless of what your Dad is into, show him you love him with any of these great affordable father’s day gift ideas.
Gear up his grill
If your Dad loves to hit up the BBQ, you can pick up a few luxury tools for his backyard cookouts without breaking the budget. Opt for a nice set of stainless steel BBQ tools or go beyond the brush and the flipper and pick up a meat skewer in the shape of a sword or a fancy meat thermometer to help your Dad take his grill game to the next level.
Sign him up
Whatever your Dad loves to do as a hobby, there is a subscription box or a club out there that could be perfect for him. If he’s a coffee lover, craft brew connoisseur, wine expert, cigar guru or anything else, you can sign him up for a club or subscription box that delivers a new item to his door every month. Show him you care about what he’s into and give him a gift that keeps giving all year long. If he’s a movie lover you could also sign him up to a streaming service and he can watch his favorite shows all year long.
Help him groom in style
If your Dad’s shaving kit is as old as mine, it’s barely holding together anymore. You can update his kit with an inexpensive, nice looking new bag plus one or two updated items, like a boar-bristle shaving brush, a nice aftershave, or beard balm or oil. You can upgrade his actual shave too by getting him a new electronic razor. Take this idea to the next level by booking him into a high quality barber or men’s grooming salon for a traditional shave and a bit of man-pampering.
Kit out his kitchen
If your Dad is a foodie who loves all things cuisine, pick up a few fun items to help him elevate his kitchen. Whether it’s a beautiful mortar and pestle, a pizza stone, or a set of gorgeous steak knives, you can get the item he’s been coveting to show off his culinary skills.
Upgrade his closet
If your Dad is a fashionista…or you wish he was, you can upgrade his closet with a few inexpensive personalized touches. Personalized cuff links or monogrammed shirts look extra classy and are affordable. Or get him a new pair of plush slippers to get into when he gets home, you can never go wrong with these.
Give him the choice
Maybe you don’t know whether he’s coveting the new headlamp or that flash screwdriver for his toolkit, but you know he never leaves his favorite store empty-handed. Treat him to choosing the gift of his liking with a gift card to his favorite store. Even better, make a day out of it and go with him when he goes shopping so you get some quality time together.
Better his bartending
If your Dad loves to entertain and be the bartender, you can help upgrade his bar. Get him some new beer or scotch glasses, you can even get them engraved or personalized for a special gift at a low cost. A stainless steel tool set for his bar is another affordable option to help him mix all the cocktails he can create. To take this gift to the next level get him that bottle of bourbon that will go perfectly with his new glasses, or a set of whiskey stones to keep his drinks chilled perfectly without getting diluted.
Treat him with tech
Dad’s a techie? Perfect. There are plenty of affordable gadgets that are super practical that he will love. Get him a portable wifi device so he’s always connected, a portable charger so his tech never dies, or go big with a new VR headset, blue tooth headphones or speakers.
However you love to treat your Dad, you can find an affordable option that he’ll love and actually use with this father’s day gift ideas.
